Alex still a tropical storm

The latest position and storm track from the National Hurricane Center reveals that Alex is still a tropical storm as of 1000 CDT. However, the NHC expects Alex to strengthen into a hurricane today, and likely make landfall in NE MEX as a Category-1 hurricane.

Peak U.S. surge estimates:
Location: South Padre Island, TX
Height: 4-6 feet

See previous post from 0800 CDT for historical comparisons of Alex to Hurricanes Emily (2005), Gilbert (1988) and the Unnamed 1909 hurricane.
